Why Care About Elevator Pitches?
I feel lucky to have gotten this far and to have only a few regrets. I don't want to dwell on it, but there is a link between one of my top regrets and the course I just launched.
If I could go back and do one thing differently, I would choose to have been more assertive in creating opportunities and inviting people to join me. I had a habit of waiting to be invited to join people, so I was left out of many things I would have loved to join. My passivity was the thing that led to my exclusion.
What does that have to do with elevator pitches? As it turns out, quite a bit. If you listen to the way many people introduce themselves to a new group, you might be surprised to find their introductions are passive, and they don't offer an invitation for the next step in a relationship.
In my own case, changing my elevator pitch to a more assertive style of creating an appealing invitation and telling people how to accept it was the turning point in my feelings of confidence and success in networking. That was one of the primary drivers in creating this course. I say more in the video, but I want to remind you that Elevator Pitches That Don't Suck is available for free until June 17th as a part of the Boost Your Business Bundle. Just click the link below to get it, along with tools and services from 140 contributors.
If you are seeing this after June 17, 2022, the course is still available in my online school: https://franklin-taggart-coaching.teachable.com/p/elevator-pitches-that-dont-suck/
